Praise for The Witcher: Fading Memories:
“This is a great video game tie-in book. It masterfully takes characters and concepts from the games and translates them into an amazing comic. Even if you have never experienced the Witcher in any other form, this is a great introduction.” – Monkeys Fighting Robots.
“…wonderful, beautiful, hard-hitting, horrific, simple and extremely complex—Flickering Myth.
“Writer Bartosz Sztybor spins a tale that feels right at home in either the books or games yet brings something wholly its own to the franchise, and artist Amad Mir and colorist Hamidreza Sheykh bring it all to stunning life, and their work on Geralt and his various expressions, in particular, are especially worthy of praise.”—Comicbook.com.
